Where is Shadow and Bone filmed?

Shadow and Bone is all set to be the best Netflix show of 2021 so far. The new Netflix original series premieres on the streaming service on April 23, 2021.

Everyone is going to be talking about the series based on Leigh Bardugo’s book series and starring Jessie Mei Li, so you might as well watch it.

One of the questions that will soon be asked by millions of Shadow and Bone fans is, “Where is Shadow and Bone filmed?”

Well, we have your answer!

Where was Shadow and Bone filmed?

Shadow and Bone was not filmed in the United States or in the United Kingdom, although you’ll likely notice, at least from the trailer, like every main character has a British accent.

Budapest, Hungary was the main filming location for Shadow and Bone. That’s also where Netflix’s The Last Kingdom and the first season of The Witcher was filmed, along with a bunch of major shows and movies. Hungary has quite the film and TV production scene going for them!

Shadow and Bone has big European vibes, especially Ravka, which is likely where most of the first season will take place. It’s sort of inspired by Eastern European cultures and countries, like Russia.

Wikipedia also lists Vancouver as a production site. It’s unclear if that’s where post-production was completed for if there were scenes filmed in Vancouver.

Where will Shadow and Bone season 2 be filmed?

That’s a good question! It’s already been reported that Shadow and Bone season 2 is happening at Netflix. What is unclear right now is if the cast and crew will be heading back to Hungary for production on season 2.

I assumed that would be the location for season 2. It’d be really tough to move production, but it’s been done before. So, we’ll just have to wait and see.

Stay tuned for more news about Shadow and Bone! The first season hits Netflix on April 23.
